LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The Rolling Stones' 1969 album "Let It Bleed" and Bob Marley's 1974 single "No Woman No Cry" are among the 20 recordings that have been added to the Grammy Hall of Fame, which honors works of "lasting qualitative or historical significance that are at least 25 years old."



Latter-day sides are in the minority this year, with "Let It Bleed," "No Woman No Cry" and Ray Charles' 1972 rendition of "America the Beautiful" being the sole representatives of modern rock and pop. (Charles is posthumously nominated for seven Grammy Awards this year.)

Other inductees include Frank Sinatra's "One for My Baby" (1958), Henry Mancini's "Peter Gunn" (1959) and Les Paul & Mary Ford's "Vaya Con Dios" (1953).

Dating back to the original 1911 recording of Irving Berlin's "Alexander's Ragtime Band" by Arthur Collins & Byron Harlan, the other tracks comprise '30s jazz sides by Louis Armstrong, Count Basie's Kansas City 7 and Billie Holiday and '20s and '30s pop evergreens by Bing Crosby (news), Gene Austin, Al Jolson (news), Ruth Etting, ################ Powell, Ray Noble, Judy Garland, Harry Richman, Fred Astaire (news) and Bob Hope (news) & Shirley Ross.
